I’ve spent over a week with this bloody game which pits you, a pencilled-in and and cut-out hero, against wave after wave of similar, but ferocious aliens. Inkvaders is Chillingo progeny, so expect nearly every iPhone fanatic to know of this game by week’s end. Me? I’ll do my best to concentrate your thoughts on its App Store Debut.

The game has debuted! 20 August 2009, the aliens attack your little notebook.

Future Racer Hands’ On Preview – Back to the Future?

Race fans, you have another dimension to explore if you want speed: The Future. Actually, I am not quite sure that the Future qualifies as a new dimension, but Assyria Game Studio‘s new title certainly qualifies as an interesting take on future racers. In the tradition of F-Zero, it is sci-fi esque, fast, and streamlined; but it also follows the 3D style of more modern racers like any of the myriad Star Wars Pod Racer clones. As in all racers, your basic mission is to beat each level with the best time and best placement: two details which require some leg-work. Strap in folksies, we is goin’ for a ride.

Got this from Assyria Games Studio’s Facebook page: Future Racer will be only 99 cents!

I have admitted it before and I’ll admit it again: my gaming skills are far from admirable. Add that to inept puzzle-solving abilities, and I am a sad and frustrated lump of a gamer who can barely stretch his digital legs. Fortunately, I thrive on frustration and Connect2Media‘s Timeloop has plenty of it. It is a fun game which places you in the role of Nik, the robotic janitor of a mad-scientist who has just invented the time-machine. As they must, things go astray whilst Nik is cleaning. The result? The professor is trapped and Nik is left with the duty of freeing his boss and recapturing a litter of runaway kittens before time runs out.

Defender Chronicles Hands On Preview – A Breath of Fresh Air

This weekend I was given the opportunity to get my greedy little hands on Defender Chronicles by Gimka Entertainment, an app I’ve been looking forward to since I had my first glance at the gameplay video. In fact, when Louis emailed me asking if I’d like to write this piece for TMA I was excited, so much so that after out short discussion I would check to see if the developers had emailed me every hour or so and when I finally got it, I couldn’t load it onto my iDevice fast enough!
